Wondering if you folks can help me here. Basically I need a new bag. The nearest camera store is 30 miles away, and none of the stores I've been in has a particulary good range of bags. At the moment I'm using an old Billingham, a hand me down, measuring it up, it's seems to be about the size of a 225 and a lot of the time it's too small for me. I've been putting off shelling out on a new bag, but with the G8 coming to Scotland and as I'll be covering it from the 2nd to the 10th along with lots of stuff in the run up, I need a bigger bag. Probably I'm not going to carry that much gear,in fact less than I usually do, I don't want to get bogged down with too much gear. So two EOS 30's a 24f2.8 (not sure about taking my 24L along) a 35mmf2, 50mmf1.8 and a 100mmf2, 420EX flash, filters and a pile of film. But I figure I also need to get in the bag a simple roll up water proof jacket, some sun scream, bottle of water and a couple of sandwiches + tobacco (probably get penned in by the police at some point). Was thinking a Billingham 445 might serve me well, plus it'll carry more gear when it need it to at later dates. Thinking the 555 is probably a monster. Are Billingham bags still really tougth? Not keen on the fasteners on the big flap, but there appears to be a sturdy zip under this. Looked at e-bay, but too many silly bidders, Robert White seems to have good prices on new ones, though if anybody has one they ain't using........... Are there other bags I should consider, or is Billingham still simply the best for the job?
